Subject Anouncing PyKafka!
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2015 19:24:06 GMT
Hi Kafka folks,

I'm happy to announce the 1.0 release of PyKafka
<https://github.com/parsely/pykafka>, a new Python driver for Kafka!

This is an upgrade of an older library, named samsa, which was only
compatible with Kafka 0.7.x. We've spent the last few months upgrading it
to work with Kafka 0.8.2.1 and revamping the codebase to be cleaner and
more efficient.

The biggest difference between PyKafka and other Python drivers is the
inclusion of a balanced consumer implementation. We implemented the same
balancing algorithm as the Java driver and PyKafka handles consumer
registration via Zookeeper like the Java driver.

We at Parse.ly have been using this driver in production for a few weeks
and are confident in its stability. Even so, we're looking to add more
features over the next couple months and are always trying to find ways to
improve performance.

You can find the project on PyPI <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pykafka/>,
Github <https://github.com/parsely/pykafka> and our mailing list
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#%21forum/pykafka-user>. We also wrote a blog
post
<http://blog.parsely.com/post/2006/announcing-pykafka-python-support-for-kafka-0-8-x/>
with a bit more info.

Cheers,

Keith.
